Protect Your Home From the Harmful Effects of the Sun


Global warming is a topic of hot discussion in today’s world. No matter which side of the debate you’re on, summer is upon us and with it, the need to live comfortably in the heat.

Given the current conditions, we’d like to share a little info on North Solar Screen’s vast line of outdoor solar shades, because really, what’s better than making your outside living spaces more livable? A little known fact is that outdoor solar shades actually stop more heat than indoor ones. Why? Because light causes heat, so, by filtering out the light before it has a chance to enter, the interior stays cooler. The idea? With outdoor solar shades you can grill but not roast on your pergola, patio, porch or deck. Here are a few more perks about outdoor solar shades. They are a transparent mesh shade so you get daytime privacy with ventilation. They are available in different densities so you can control the amount of glare reduction and UV protection to stop fading of interior furnishings. Oh and one more thing, North Solar Screen’s outdoor solar shades have a layer of biocide in them to inhibit the mold and mildew.

Just want to blot out the blinding sun? Need both day and night time privacy to stop nosey neighbors’ eyes? North Solar Screen has a full line of high performance total light blocking shade fabrics can withstand temperature ranges from minus 86° F to 158° F.

How about if you want total vision out but just need protection from the wind and rain or the cold air? North Solar Screen also has a full line of heavy gauge clear vinyl shades that provide a transparent barrier against the elements. They allow the warmth of the sun to fully penetrate. Just add a safe heater and stay toasty and dry.
